It seems that Acrobat 7 does not successfully convert Japanese pdf text to text. Has anyone figured out how to do this easily? Thanks.

Convert ? OCR ? Jan 3, 2008

If you mean OCR from a scanned document then I fear you are out of luck. You'll need a package that supports Japanese and that is supported by your system.

If you mean a proper "text" PDF, then Preview should be enough, if you use OSX. Also Acrobat Reader has a "Save to text" function if I remember well. It worked with Japanese the last time I tried it.
